Sticking With Your Gut

"What’s nice about being on your own is you’re in control.  Every good decorator is a little bit of a control freak.  When you’re in control, if you don’t click with someone, you don’t have to accept them as clients.  Decorating is about personality.  I love the people I work with." -Miles Redd
Miles Redd is one of my all-time favorite designers.  I love this quote he originally shared in New York Magazine in 2003, and wholeheartedly agree with it.  I love my clients.  In fact, one of them has recently become my cycling buddy!  We just click.   
In the short time since I've launched my design business, I have learned the importance of sticking with my gut.  Whether it be taking on a new client, consulting on a room, or choosing finishes, I have to listen to my intuition and not second-guess myself.  When something doesn't feel exactly "right," you have to pay attention to that!  

Of course that extends beyond work in to all facets of life.  Can any of you relate?
